While we encourage relaxing to the fullest while in Ngapali, Remote Lands can also arrange various activities during your stay: Undertake a journey by boat along the coastline or to mangroves in a nearby river; go fishing for tuna, mackerel, or barracuda; watch for birds in the nearby forests; hike through woods, fields, and villages with your own private guide; bike through the surrounding countryside; golf at a nearby 9-hole course. Additionally, visitors can also go on a half-day tour of Ngapali to visit markets, handicraft shops, monasteries, and local villages.
Ngapali's beaches are a perfect complement to the wealth of cultural touring that Myanmar offers. Its soft white sands, warm tropical waters and ample palm tree shade make the perfect environment in which to reflect on your journey.
Kinmaw village is a main market for the works of local potters and weavers from the Rakhine State (Myanmar's westernmost province).

Amata Ngapali Beach Resort
One of the most exclusive beach resorts in Myanmar, Amata Ngapali Beach Resort stretches along the gorgeous shoreline of the southern end of Ngapali Beach. This resort is located in a secluded area of the much-admired beach, making it a prime spot for true relaxation, peace and tranquility. The cabana-style guest rooms nestle amongst lush gardens, shielded by tropical trees and fauna for privacy. Rooms are well-equipped, balancing contemporary comfort with traditional Asian chic. From the large swimming pool, luxury sun loungers and beach bar guests can soak in the sun or rest in the shade against stunning vistas of the Bay of Bengal. The exclusive spa offers a wide range of treatments, therapies and massage techniques, in both traditional and specialized international styles. The airy restaurant whips up traditional Myanmar, Asian and international cuisine daily to satisfy its discerning guests. In the evenings, enjoy a fresh seafood barbeque while you gaze over the gentle ocean to the night sky. The resort is within walking distance of an array of restaurants and the delightful Mya Pyin village.
